CANT is the baby of Grizzly Bear’s Chris Taylor. It is a Terrible Records Family affair as George Lewis Jr. of Twin Shadow helps out on the album and Blood Orange’s Dev Hynes plays in the live rendition of CANT. “Dreams Come True” is out 9.13.2011 on Terrible Records/Warp Records. It is a collection of tunes that are a totally different and refreshing listen compared to the verbose and intricate music of Grizzly Bear. The music feels like if Vincent Gallo’s music was remixed by his Warp Records label mates. Once again Warp Records wins me over. This album will be in heavy rotation this Fall for me #AutumnalTones
Listen to “Believe” a slowburner of a tune full of dirty bass and “Answer” with its swarming dark R’n'B vibes.
Rustie is going to flip the entire electronic music scene on its head with his album “Glass Sword”. It is pure hypersonic bliss that is set to shoot all of our minds and feet into hyperdrive. Listen to the lightspeed boogie track that is “All Nite” off of “Glass Sword” which is out on Warp Records, 10.11.2011
Ah 2 hours of Jamie xx digging deep into his musical roots and influences, all in hopes of us dancing just a little bit. He throws in a fair amount of deep House tracks and some serious disco. Take note of a little teaser of his upcoming remix of Radiohead’s “Bloom” at the very end. Enjoy!

It is everything and nothing at the same time but it will surely make you move to da groove. Also: “This release is also inspired by Jerome’s pet named Bubbles who is 17years old and is blind :’( ”

From this stream I can say that The Rapture are onto something fresh and exciting with their upcoming album “In the Grace of Your Love”. An endeavor that was lead by producer Phillipe Zdar who was a big plus in helping The Rapture keep one foot in the past and one in the future. Stream the entire album now via the DFA Records’ “White Out Sessions”.
Cloud Boat first caught my ear with their tune “Lions on the Beach” which is finally getting its release on R&S Records this fall. Sam & Tom were kind enough to answer some questions about themselves and their music in hopes of painting a clearer picture of Cloud Boat, but I think their blurry and reverb soaked sounds are all you need to understand them.
1. Who is Cloud Boat? How would you describe your music?
We’re Sam Ricketts and Tom Clarke, and we live in North London. Describing music with words is always difficult, even more so when it’s our own. We just try to make emotional music without constraints in a way that feels right.
2. What is your first musical memories?
Sam – My earliest memories include an assortment of children’s TV themes, video game soundtracks and 70s/80s compilation tapes in my Mum’s car. I’d say beginning to listen to and be involved with classical music were the first instances that began to shape who I feel am musically today.
Tom – One is my dad singing Irish songs at parties when I was young, it never embarrased or annoyed me and I always listened intently. Another being me and my sister recording ourselves trying to harmonise nursery rhymes and singing songs in weird accents onto tape with an old knackered stereo that I still have. We’ve both recently realised that we were really fucking weird. [Read more]
